All that being said, the writing itself is good and the story is moving - I continue to be baffled by our main character. Also there are no disturbing grammatical or spelling errors, which is a breath of fresh air in a low cost kindle book.
I enjoyed the creativity of this story and the author’s take on time travel. Her delightful use of imagery puts you in the scene, taking you along for the ride on Calla’s adventures. It was well written, the characters were defined, and the concept was intriguing-which is exactly why I wished the author had gone deeper. There were areas glossed over that, with greater exploration, would have served to draw me in more. There were story elements as well that could have used a bit more explanation. I also had trouble understanding Calla. Without going too far into SPOILER territory, I found Calla too nonchalant with her situation. After what she’d gone through, and her self-abandonment of friends and family, I didn’t understand why she was ‘going with the flow’, especially with Valcas. She eagerly, or perhaps a better word is blindly, accepted him and the circumstances that she found herself in because of him. I felt she did the same with Edgar, and others, putting herself in their hands with very little questions asked. It didn’t seem the way someone who had been so previously burned by trusting people, would behave.
Overall, I enjoyed the read and would definitely recommend it. Travel Glasses held my attention with plenty of action, mystery, and romance. The author spun an imaginative and charming tale with an ending that leaves you more than a little curious about what’s to come for Calla in book #2.
The aspect I enjoyed the most in this book was seeing how the decisions a character made in the past (or pasts--I won't event try to explain that) shaped that character's destiny for better or for worse. Because of time travel, the main character, Calla, can see people's lives play out in a non-linear fashion and get to know them from the past, present, and future (again-- I won't try to explain that). While doing this, Calla discovers her pre-conceived notions of why people do the things they do are not always correct-- something for everyone to think about.
I also enjoyed the originality of the devices and means of time travel in this book. Technology wasn't the only factor. Yes, technology provided the foundation for travel, but a person's thoughts prior to travel were what ultimately determined a traveler's destination. This was a refreshing deviation from the plug any date into a time travel machine and push a button approach of time travel seen in many other novels.
Make time to read this one!
